Rugby League – Bateman eyeing series success

England's John Bateman says he's eager to sign off his career in Europe with victory in the Test Series against New Zealand. Bateman has signed for NRL side Canberra Raiders and will jet off Down Under following the culmination of the three-game schedule against the Kiwis. The former Wigan centre is looking forward to the challenge in Australia but wants to wrap up a series win first with England, who are 13/10 with bet365 to win the second Test at Anfield on Sunday. He said: "Hopefully, we can finish with two more victories and wrap things up before I head across and start a new challenge. But there's no bigger challenge than heading to Australia and playing in the NRL."
